More Troubling News About Pain Killers

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Oct 27, 2015 | 0 Comments

It seems like most the new studies on the effectiveness of pain killers indicate that these drugs are not much help at all.  We have seen recently that over-the-counter drugs are more useful. New pain killers are scarcely better than placebos. Now comes word that giving narcotic pain pills to teenagers is a poor idea.

You Got Any Of Those Placbos?

 A new study found that those teenagers who used narcotic pain killers had a 33% higher rate of becoming addicted. This was notably true for those teens with little or no experience with illegal drugs. In other words, just the kids who have the best chance of staying sober.  The study recommends that doctors prescribe narcotic pain killers very sparingly for their teen aged patients. Once more, we are left to wonder what actual benefit these powerful, addictive and very expensive drugs provide.

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
